A group of black pastors went to the White House last month with a sobering message: abortion is destroying black America.
According to Center for Disease Control statistics, 1,500 black babies are aborted each day in the United States. That amounts to more than 500,000 children per year out of a community that already faces challenges to its survival. For this reason, Pastor Luke Robinson of Quinn Chapel A.M.E. Church in Fredrick, Maryland, wanted to ask the Bush Administration to help educate the public about the insidious genocidal aspects of the pro-abortion movement.
Robinson headed up a delegation of pastors who are carrying to the White House a message of alarm about the way abortion is systematically destroying the African-American community. “We make up 12 percent of the population,” he says, “and 34 percent of all those babies aborted are African American. Those numbers are devastating to us.”
The contingent of nearly 200 ministers was scheduled to meet with White House officials to ask for President Bush's help in educating U.S. citizens about this tragedy. And while Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills promote death cross-culturally, Robinson says abortion is particularly gutting the black population and slowly devastating the community.
Citing troubling census statistics, the minister says, “We find that the Hispanic birthrate is about 3.2, the white birthrate is about 2.2, and I think the African American birthrate is 0.9; which means the Hispanic community is tripling itself, the whites are doubling themselves, and the African American community are not even replacing themselves.”
The Maryland pastor and pro-life activist says most people, even in the black community, have no idea that abortion is the number one killer of blacks in the United States. Robinson and the other pastors are determined to raise awareness about the “cultural genocide” being carried out against blacks by the abortion industry.
